[Thought] We are living in a bewildering world!


We are living in a bewildering world, engulfed by intensity of everything. Floods kill people in massive numbers, wars eliminate people in huge numbers, factories produce things in staggering numbers which are then sold in huge markets, there is so much riches in the world that some people can afford to have whatever they imagine yet there is widespread poverty.
In short we are living in a world of extremes, and dangers that are unique. Withing this chaotic world of uprooted individuality as it is challenged from these forces of extremism, how we can hope to find solace, and stability. In this new brave world we we have lost touch of the perennial wisdom that exhorts us to sift through information and knowledge to find real wisdom! These times demand us to live and die wisely so, we present you with a couplet of TS Eliot to ponder upon and reflect. In this poetry Elliot suggests an important idea and that is the question of finding ‘wisdom’ in the ocean of chaos…around us. In this so called ‘knowledge society’ how are we supposed to find meaning and establish our lives..let us think.

”Where is the life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is knowledge we have lost in information?
The cycles of Heaven in twenty centuries
Bring us farther from God and nearer to Dust”
TS Elliot
